    DefaultLaura....I have what is probably a stupid question

    But that won't stop me from asking it.

    I was wondering are the boards around the sides of the whelping box to prevent the mother from squishing the puppies? When I looked in on Labbycam today 4 of the pups were under the boards and it got me thinking how easy it would be for a puppy to get squeezed between the mom and the side of the box.

    By the way I think they are all adorable and Libby looks like she is such a good mom.

    They are called pig-rails, and yes, they are there to help the pups have a place to go to keep them safe from momma rolling over on them...

    Yep Karon. That's exactly what they are for. The cam hasn't been on today so you must be looking at something from yesterday. As the pups get bigger they tend to scatter around the box more and you'll find a lot of them under the rails.

    Thanks Laura and Jen,

    I posted this last night. I had it on at work watching the puppies yesterday.
